This game is going to have huge playoff implications. The Dolphins are chasing the Jaguars in the hunt for a wild card spot.
Last week Miami upset the Patriots and have some momentum swinging their win. Had it not been for their misstep against the Bills in week 12, Miami would be sitting pretty.
In Chad Henne’s six wins this season he has thrown only two interceptions. In his four losses, he’s thrown six interceptions.
The Jaguars have a great record at home (5-1) and against conference opponents (6-2). However, they do not put much pressure on the quarterback and cause opposing offenses to make mistakes.
They are last in the league in sacks (12), tied for 12th in interceptions caused (12), tied for 21st in fumbles forced (10), and tied for 21st in fumbles recovered (7). Their pass defense is also ranked 23rd in the league.
Also going to factor into the game is not selling the game out. Approximately 9,000 tickets remain, and they are playing an in-state team, whose own fans could make the trip up.
Without a strong fan support behind them and a lack of ability to force the quarterback to make mistakes, Chad Henne could be in for another big game, following up his career-best last week against a stronger Patriots team.
